Research is “creative and systematic work undertaken to increase the stock of knowledge, including knowledge of humans, culture and society, and the use of this stock of knowledge to devise new applications.”
or in other hand Research is a process of steps used to collect and analyze information to increase our understanding of a topic or issue. At a general level, research consists of three steps: 1. Pose a question. 2. Collect data to answer the question. 3. Present an answer to the question. This should be a familiar process. You engage in solving problems every day and you start with a question, collect some information, and then form an answer Research is important for three reasons.1. Research adds to our knowledge: Adding to knowledge means that educators undertake research to contribute to existing information about issues 2.Research improves practice: Research is also important because it suggests improvements for practice. Armed with research results, teachers and other educators become more effective professionals. 3. Research informs policy debates: research also provides information to policy makers when they research and debate educational topics.
A research project may also be an expansion on past work in the field. Research projects can be used to develop further knowledge on a topic, or in the example of a school research project, they can be used to further a student’s research prowess to prepare them for future jobs or reports. To test the validity of instruments, procedures, or experiments, research may replicate elements of prior projects or the project as a whole. The primary purposes of basic research (as opposed to applied research) are documentation, discovery, interpretation, or the research and development (R&D) of methods and systems for the advancement of human knowledge. Approaches to research depend on epistemologies, which vary considerably both within and between humanities and sciences. There are several forms of research: scientific, humanities, artistic, economic, social, business, marketing, practitioner research, life, technological, etc. The scientific study of research practices is known as meta-research.
The word research is derived from the Middle French “recherche“, which means “to go about seeking”, the term itself being derived from the Old French term “recerchier” a compound word from “re-” + “cerchier”, or “sercher”, meaning ‘search’. The earliest recorded use of the term was in 1577
meaning.. let go of the seeking ness and focus more on the listening ness.. at least until we get back in sync

“It shows that nature’s economy is far more complex than we can imagine. When you do something over here, it affects something over there; that’s nature’s balance sheet. But it’s so intricate we can scarcely imagine what affects what.”

science is fabulous, and interesting, but it won’t give us peace of mind

science tells us about what the mind can know about the universe .. note, that is not the same thing as telling us about the universe :-)
don’t think it really tells us what the mind can know.. ie: does science know the mind..?

C. Shannon on keeping science in *order: “Authors should submit only their best efforts […] A few first rate research papers are preferable to a large number that are poorly conceived or half-finished. The latter are no credit to their writers & a waste of time to their readers” (http://twitter.com/neurograce/status/1230086942936698880?s=17)

So well said. I like to poke the “science is truth” zealots by suggesting science without doubt is religion. And that usually ends the convo in a giant fireball. https://t.co/nryQjGZa3B

@NoraBateson: There is no way to separate science from culture,economy,politics, identity,history,tech. Which questions are driving research?Who paid for the researh? What perceptions led to those questions?Scientific research ALWAYS lands in poltical cultural story, w economic consequences.
@NoraBateson: Its not about morals… Of course there are morally sound scientists, they still can unsee through their cultural lenses…nor can the information they produce be untouched by the stories and pulls of culture.
